    has anyone used the complete food?

    i've heard good things on review sites but wanted proper honest opinions from the public;)

    I think my Dinky is allergic to chicken...most foods contain some sort of chicken being meat to oils.... i heard that fish oils/meat is good for the skin and coat plus allergies.

    your opinions please:D

    I have fed my dog on this since I got him and as soon as I switched to it his coat become so soft and lovely looking and the poops being smaller and always firm was a big bonus too. Never thought I would talk about poop this much before getting a dog.

    He was also very itchy all over prior to going on fish4dogs and this completely disappeared too. As a treat he sometimes has some fish4dogs salmon mousse on top of his kibble and he goes crazy for that stuff.

    I am looking at adding another food at the moment as every month or so my dog gets bored so would be good to have some flexibility but if it wasn't for that I would just leave him on fish4dogs all the time.
     
  5. I have used it, and think its supurb - unfortunately one of my dog is really fussy and will not even look at it now.

    No probs, he is an 8 year old rescue dog, we were told a labrador collie cross, but we think he might have some german shepherd in him too. He's a mystery, but a cute mystery!

    unfortunately it went straight through my youngest BC but the other two loved it with no ill effects.

    I'm a big fan of the stuff. I can only comment on the puppy complete which is what i've been feeding my FCR since last November.

    He loves it, especially with some of their salmon oil drizzled over it. He's got a good slick coat, he's never had scurf (even when the heating came on in the winter) and has solid output (always a bonus when scooping :D ). He's growing into a well proportioned dog and seems to have got everything that he needed physically from his diet.

    For my part, I would always give it the thumbs up as a dry food choice and have never once thought of needing to swap to another brand.

    I've had my 5 Ridgebacks and 2 Aussies on it for ages now - really impressed. Dogs look great and no more having to add sardines and the like to their food to give them shiny coats. In fact, several of my friends have been so impressed by how my dogs look that they've switched over to it. Just wish I was on commission :D

    My grey has their salmon kibble, he likes it and looks in great condition. Don't need to feed as much either so the 12kg bag lasts about same as 15kg of previous food. I get it delivered from VetUK as for some reason its much cheaper than direct.

    If you want something available in store, then the Fishmongers range from Pets at Home is an excellent food and very similar to Fish 4 Dogs.

    Sonny my cocker spaniel gets Fish4dogs. Sorry I have not really got any cons for it other than I do not think that his coat is as good on this as it was when he was on Arden Grange. Sonny has digestive problems probably cause by rice so he got switched to this and it is great stuff not had any problems with it and he has been on it for about 6 months. I may try the pets @ home stuff now the one near me is reopen though as I have to order fish 4 dogs online and end up buying loads of other things as well although I do the same at Pets @ Home :eek:
